Montana Department
of Transportation Proposes Over-Height Detection System in Glasgow

GLASGOW  The Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) would like
to notify the public and seek comments on a proposal to install an
over-height vehicle detection and warning system for the railroad
bridge over 6th Street South (Montana Highway 42) in Glasgow.

Proposed work includes installation of over-height vehicle detectors
and warning signs activated by over-height vehicles in advance of 6th
Street South. The purpose of the project is to prevent over-height
vehicles from striking this bridge and blocking 6th Street South. 

Construction is tentatively planned for 2019 depending on completion
of design and availability of funds. New right-of-way and relocation
of utilities are not anticipated.

or Project Design Engineer LeRoy Wosoba at (406) 444 1280. Members of
the public may submit written comments to the Montana Department of
Transportation Glendive office at P.O. Box 890, Glendive, MT
